More UK Phone Number Information

Geographical numbers in the UK feature an area code, dependent on region, before a six-digit figure. British area codes begin with either 01 or 02, followed by two, three, four, or five digits. For example, the area code for London is 020, while for Manchester it is 0161. A UK phone number would therefore be formatted as follows: (Area code) XXX XXX.

Toll free phone numbers in the UK begin with either 0800 or 0808. For more information on UK phone number formats, visit Ofcom. To find out more about specific numbers we offer in the UK, use the dropdown at the top of this page or visit the pages linked below:
